Help the Sahariyas of India For Their Development and Wellbeing sign now

This petition is to raise voice in favour of a community besieged by exploitation and backwardness. These are Sahariya of MP in India, primarily residing in Gwalior and Chambal region. They are classified as primitive tribal group based on level of their literacy,socio economic satatus.The population of Sahairyas in MP is around 5,00,000.They are the most marginalized and exploited group of people.Thier sources of livelihood are in the hands of powerful people.Major concerns among the Sahariya are-lowest level of literacy, severe malnutrition,high prevalence of tuberculosis and anemia. In all Government efforts for development, the benefits are taken by others in the names sahariya.They have largely remained unreached by the Government development programs. Traditionally they have been dependent on the forest for most of thier needs.Forest is disappearing, and alternate sources of livelihood are not avaialble.Stone quarrying, collection of forest produce, subsistence agricutlutre and goat rearing and daily wage work are main source of livelihood .In many cases thier land is in the possession of others. It is time we think seriously about the survival and care of this community.It is of foremost importance to provide social security system and protect them from the exploitation. It will also demand creating a climate of respect and dignity for them. Special care is needed for thier health, nutrition and education and housing needs.
